The final games of the Golden Wave tournament got underway with the Subsidiary Cup, which was won by Swiss team VT Wealth management, a Fedier father and son partnership facing another association, the Dark Ice Team and Lions Polo Team. This complicated game, with many stoppages, took place under a hot summer sun.
The second match of the day was the Golden Wave final, where F Polo Team faced Saint-Tropez Polo Team. This was an interesting match with determined players and resolute Argentine pros working hard to claim the title. At the end of the 4th period, the F Polo Team overtook Saint-Tropez Polo Team with a score of 9 to 6. Matias Carrique, replacing Justin Gaunt, was as resilient as the latter, absent for the weekend of the tournament due to injury.
A different sort of horsepower was also on show at the Polo Club Saint Tropez this weekend in the form of an “Old Car Trophy” competition. More than 25 post-war motorcars paraded in front of a large audience watching from the shaded terraces of Polo 1999. A magnificent Delage was awarded first prize at the end of this bucolic event.
The prize giving ceremony was as ever a generous affair with rosés and special gifts for the winners. The award for best pony went to Thailandesa, played by Matias Nigoul.
As the evening began to the rhythms of jazz, the public and players were invited to participate at the Gala Dinner hosted by the Polo 1999 restaurant. The best Argentine cuts of meat and ceviches were on the menu, followed by the chef’s dessert, the famous “Chocolate Polo Ball with dulce de leche.
A new edition of Sunday Polo will take place during the final of the International Polo Cup Saint-Tropez on July 17th.
